>From the CHANGES file:
24 Dec 1993, v1.25: Redid the \declare... commands, and replaced
everyglyh and everyendglyph by sidebearings.
so you're right, the use of everyglyph died out a while ago (if I
remember correctly, using everyglyph was very time-consuming given that
all it was ever used for was sidebearings).
Ah the nostialgia, 1993, v1.25, etc.
